Caribbean Hot Pepper Sauce

Caribbean Hot Pepper Sauce

Ingredients:
1/2 pound red habanero chiles, seeds and stems removed
1 white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup lime juice (or lemon juice)
2 tablespoons water
1 medium papaya, boiled until tender, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Directions:
Combine the chiles, onion, garlic, papaya, and tomato in a food processor and puree (you may have to do this in batches). Remove to a shallow bowl. Combine the vinegar, lime juice, and water in a saucepan and heat until it reaches a slight boil, then sprinkle the thyme, basil, nutmeg, mustard, and turmeric. Pour this hot, spiced mixture over the reserved puree and mix thoroughly. It will last up to eight weeks in the refrigerator.
